To the best mommy in the world, who opened me to the world of… everything! And always taught me not to skimp on food.
This made me laugh so hard:
I got dressed up… clad in leather and leopard haha #classy and headed out to brunch with my parents.
Sel de la Terre had a special Mothers Day brunch so we decided to grab a bite and then wander and shop around a bit afterwards. Coffees all around please. None of us could get up this morning. It was already 1pm but we were sleepy. At least I was.
Some multigrain bread and foccacia
Bloody Mary for me…
MMMMMMM I feel like I haven’t had one in ages! SDLT has pretty good ones, altho this one wasn’t mixed too well at first and my first sip was all vodka. I’m not complaining tho, I love my vodka.
Charcuterie plate with duck liver terrine, pork rillette, whole grain mustard, toasted crostini and chutney
Soup du Jour: Tomato Soup with Cheesey Crostini
It was thick and creamy… had a cheese stank to it, in a good way and in a bad way, I’m actually not that big on creamy soups, esp ones with cheese creamed into it. It was a good soup for dipping and much bread was inhaled by way of dunking into this orange concoction. It was still a HUGE portion and I could only finish like 1/4 or 1/3 of it.
Entrees are served!!!
Mommy got the Lemon risotto with Atlantic Salmon, tomatoes, spinach, and smoked salmon
She does this a lot, get something and then eat everyone else’s food but her own. She already had a lot of bread, charcuterie – she LOVES foie gras, and some of my soup and then some of dad’s entree so she just kinda ate the salmon and some veggies from this. She’s also not a big risotto person so…. *shrugs* that’s why I got her bacon and she was SO happy I did. Anyways there was cooked salmon IN the risotto and smoked salmon on top. I duno why but I thought it was odd, *double shrugs*
Daddy got the House roasted pulled pork sandwich with SDLT barbecue sauce on brioche bun, frites
The bun was fluffy and the pork was tender.. the sauce was a bit on the sweet side but daddy still loved it. The frites were perfect as always! Since daddy’s dish came with frites, this was the first time I wasn’t an ass and asked for my free foursquare frites HAHA.
And I got the Arugula Salad with red onions, beets and spiced cashews with a vinaigrette with a rare steak on top.
Delicious fresh crisp arugula balanced great with my mooing bloody steak. Mom freaked out when she saw how rare it was. I didn’t expect such a huge chunk of meat so I’m glad I didn’t get more food to go with this. SO good. I wish there were more beets in it tho I just had a meesly few tiny pieces/slivers LAME. There were also some foccacia croutons, garlicky, and the red onions were sliced super super thin. Very delicious.
And of course a side of perfectly cooked Bacon! Meaty, fatty and perfectly crisp. NOM!
We balled out with a Grand Sampling for dessert…
Bread Pudding, Caradmom Ice Cream w/ pistachips, Lava Cake, Lemon Tart, Truffles, Macaron, Cookies and Creme Brulee
When we got home, these were waiting for my mommy at the garage :][ From me!!!
These gorgeous flowers were from W :] Sweetest boyfriend!
Happy Mother’s Day Mommy! To the strongest, stubborn but sweet, intelligent and most beautiful woman I know.
